This is my weekly installment for the A2Z Blog Meme. I really enjoy working my way through the alphabet because it makes me think beyond the normal things that come to mind when I sit down to write my blog.

Today is M-Day. For MUSIC!

There is a soundtrack that runs through my head at all times. Right now, the tune to "Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver is playing.

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Mood music does so much for scenes when I'm watching. But I can imagine that "spooky music" would mean about as much to a deaf person as the color red would mean to a blind person. I like "the music says we should be scared" instead!Thanks for stopping by, gals! Enjoying visiting your blogs each week!

  2. I love this post. I love music and sometimes sing with just random sounds instead of real words–whatever goes best with the melody that I make up at the moment.The music in movies does a lot for me, too. I'm often known to say something like, "Ohhh, the music says we should be scared!" But for my Deaf friends, they just laugh if the captions say something like "spooky music." Those words just don't lend the same mood as the music itself does.

  3. What fun! I can / do listen to music that matches the mood of the scene I'm writing, but it has to be instrumental only…no words or that distracts me. I did so-so on the quiz. I think I got about half of them right. Thanks for a fun post!

  4. My hubby laughs because I could do anything with the TV or talk radio going in the background, but not music. So weird.

  7. I had a COMPLETE fail on the quiz. I'm ashamed of myself.As for John Denver, I actually MET him once (have a picture to prove it) at a private concert in Aspen. He had such a unique voice and style… no one has ever quite copied it.

  8. Great M!! Music. Love it!! My oldest (18 y/o) just discovered John Denver's music–LoL–and is shocked I can sing along. *eye roll*And when the natives are restless and I need to focus I put in my earbuds and turn on either Mozart or Vivaldi–the best thinking music ever!! =]
